Description

This is a zoom in on the famous Orion nebula and its Trapezium open star cluster. The stars within it radiate so much energy that the gas cloud has been formed into an expanding shell. The nebula, also known as Messier 42 or M42, is a huge cloud of gas and dust, so big that many new stars are currently being born there. M42 is visible with the naked eye as the middle ‘star’ of the Orion ‘The Hunter”s sword. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 600D mounted on a telescope.
